I think I remember reading that Ollie lives in Oregon now. Is this true?
I hadn't heard that before. I'll have to look into it. Thanks!
Well his wife passed away and there was an estate sell last summer at his home in La Canada Flintridge. I'm pretty sure I heard that he moved to Oregon to live with family.
From Cartoonbrew:The last surviving member of Disney’s Nine Old Men, Ollie Johnston, has moved to Oregon, and this past weekend, there was a quietly advertised estate sale at his La Canada home. I didn’t attend, but animator Mark Kausler (It’s the Cat) has a lengthy report on his blog (yes, he’s finally blogging!!) along with photos from the sale. DreamWorks animator Donnachada Daly also checked it out and shares a few of his purchases on his blog. Other folks on message boardsâ€”here and hereâ€”are also posting items they purchased.http://www.cartoonbrew.com/events/an-animation-legend-has-a-garage-sale
Thanks Kevin, I read Brew all the time and didn't pick up on this. Might be time for a road trip!
